Thanks Neville and all the others who have sent their
encouragement. Jan and I have always enjoyed our inner
city birding, but I didn't realise just how rewarding
it really was until I first started estimating totals
for 'The Puny Twitch'.

Here's the list as at Valentine's Day (hope the
formatting is OK). I'll include the 'want' list with
my next report.

See you on the streets,
